Most people think that distracted driving is limited to driving while texting, but it takes many other forms as well-putting a CD in the stereo, trying to break up a fight in the backseat, or simply watching the scenery, rather than the road. The bulk of accidents involving distracted drivers, though, involve the use of handheld devices. According to a U.S. Department of Transportation website-www.distraction.gov-nearly 700,000 drivers may be texting, talking or looking up something on a handheld device at any given moment.
